Seawolf Submarine Paper Crafts

Updated April 17, 2017

The Seawolf is a class of submarine originally designed to destroy Soviet missile submarines. They can operate under the polar ice cap and can fight against multiple enemies using torpedoes. With the highest speed of any United States submarine, it also is the quietest to help it remain stealthy as it moves through the ocean. While there are not paper crafts specific to the Seawolf class, there are several related to submarines in general.

Cardboard Box Submarine

Kids can create a submarine out of cardboard boxes and materials found around the home. A large moving box can be the main body; flatten it to determine the top, bottom, front, back and sides of the sub. Use a plate to trace circles for the windows to be cut out later; save the circles to be used to create braces to keep the sub upright. Once it's assembled, cover it with silver wrapping paper using tape. Gold posterboard can be cut to form a propeller and a PVC pipe can be placed through the top for a periscope.

Peek-a-Boo Submarine

Younger children will enjoy making a submarine sun catcher out of construction and tissue paper. According to instructions at, first draw a submarine on a sheet of construction paper, then cut it out. Cut circles out to represent the windows of the sub. Children can decorate or colour the sub at this point. Finally, glue or tape pieces of tissue paper to the back of the sheet to cover the circular windows.

Yellow Submarine

Though it's not the same colour as the grey Seawolf class of submarines, at, parents can learn how to make a yellow submarine with their children. Any colour construction paper will work for this project. First, roll construction paper into a tube and glue it to hold it in place. Then, create a cone out of another sheet of paper and tape or glue it to the end. Use a pipe cleaner to make the periscope and make ovals on either side of the sub with a black marker to denote windows.

Submarine Diorama

On its website, Crayola describes how to make a submarine diorama. First, cut a cardboard roll, make two balls of aluminium foil and insert them into each end of the roll. Glue them in place. Use chenille sticks to create the propeller blades and glue them onto the aluminium foil. Cut rectangles to make rudders. Crayola recommends using its "Model Magic" product to create the top of the sub and some of the components but cardboard or construction paper would work, too. For the diorama part, remove the top from a show box and colour a background scene on the bottom of the box. Turn the box on its side and glue the submarine into place inside.
